Visit Avala and Vinča
Private half-day trip from Belgrade
Visit the archaeological remains of a stone-age village
Half-day private day trip from Belgrade to the countryside - enjoy fresh mountain air and lovely scenery at Mount Avala, then explore the remains of a Stone Age Village.
Private day tour in Belgrade, Serbia, to the locals’ favourite beauty spots
Pick up from your Belgrade hotel and drive 11 miles south of the city to the 1,677ft high Mount Avala. At the peak of the mountain is a terrace and the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, built on the orders of the King with the eight provinces of Yugoslavia represented by massive statues of black marble guarding the monument. Also nearby is a memorial to those executed by the Nazis during the occupation, and another to a group of Soviet soldiers who died in an accident whilst attending the 20th anniversary celebrations of the liberation of Yugoslavia by the Red Army from the Nazis. The reconstruction of the TV tower is now complete – the original was bombed during the NATO campaign of 1999, and this is now virtually identical to the old, and was funded by donations from over a million people.
Also visit Vinca, one of central Europe’s best archaeological sites. In 1908 the remains of a 4,000-year-old village were discovered – dating from the Neolithic or stone age period – with traces of their cottages, and lots of quite sophisticated domestic artefacts such as jewellery, figurines and kitchen pottery, and farming implements and weapons, made of stone and bone. Many of these relics are displayed in the National Museum in Belgrade. Return to your hotel in Belgrade.
